Apple Somehow Manages to Patent a Removable Battery
Apple has just been awarded a patent that will, once again, leave some scratching their heads. The idea is simple: universal batteries. That is - batteries designed to work in multiple devices. This is a bit different than stand-alone batteries, like AA or AAA, in that it's a special product similar to a laptop or phone battery that has the ability to slide into a variety of devices. One moment, a "C" battery could be in your desktop for charging, while the next it could be in your wireless mouse.

I'm waiting for them to patent air so we all have to pay a licensing fee or die.
